for more than a week publicly after the killing. >> it's important to know that there's an fbi investigation that has begun, and will take some time to be completed. that will tell us with certainty what transpired, but our current best assessment, based on the information that we have at present, is that in fact, what this began as was a spontaneous, not a premeditated, response to what had transpired in cairo. >> now, there are many possible explanations for why the administration took so long to budge from that line. everything from an excess of caution to the fog of war to incompetence or domestic politics. we don't have the answer nailed down on that. what we do have, though, is a collection of inconsistencies between the administration line and our own understanding of the facts. recall our exclusive reporting last night based on several sources that not one single fbi investigator has yet to even set foot at the crime scene in benghazi. that remains true tonight. yet when asked to comment, an american official told us that fbi investigators on the ground are not experien

at a flea market. she bought this for $7, planned to sell it to the highest bidder. why the fbi is now saying not so fast. when you take a closer look... ...at the best schools in the world... ...you see they all have something very interesting in common. they have teachers... ...with a deeper knowledge of their subjects. as a result, their students achieve at a higher level. let's develop more stars in education. let's invest in our teachers... ...so they can inspire our students. let's solve this. and the candidate's speech is in pieces all over the district. the writer's desktop and the coordinator's phone are working on a joke with local color. the secure cloud just received a revised intro from the strategist's tablet. and while i make my way into the venue, the candidate will be rehearsing off of his phone. [ candidate ] and thanks to every young face i see out there. [ woman ] his phone is one of his biggest supporters.

of there the next day. we were told by susan rice the fbi's investigating. the fbi has never gone in to banghazi. this is 15, 16 days later. that tells you banghazi is an utterly unsafe city. you know, it's al-qaedaville, if you will, if the fbi can't go into the consulate and investigate. barack obama is saying we've won the war against al-qaeda, we're winning the war, they're in retreat, all the rest of it. if al-qaeda is that strong in banghazi, the libyan government can't deal with this thing, what did we liberate there? al-qaeda is in the arabian peninsula, it's in anbar province, it's in libya, it's in pakistan. the main one, and hillary clinton just referred to it today, take a look at northern mali. it's the size of france. the affiliate of al-qaeda has taken over the place entirely. she seemed to suggest the attack might have originated there. right next door an american general has been in there. they're talking about a 3,000-man army to invade that area. what's at stake is obama's entire middle east policy and all this -- you know, queue sama is dead and year on a roll. >> sean: if th

for two days. he was convicted in 2009 for bank fraud. we're told the fbi has contacted him because of possible threats against him. we're told he's not under investigation right now. >> brian, thanks very much. brian todd working this story. less than two years ago we watched as these kinds of protests spread across north africa and the middle east. protesters fighting to overthrow dictators and regimes. fast forward to today. we're seeing these same countries erupt in violence anti-american protests. let's bring in bobby gauche, editor at large for "time" magazine. he wrote this week's cover story "the agents of outrage," an excellent article, bobby. thanks very much. let me read a line from your article. the arab spring replaced the harsh order of hated dictators with a flowering of neophyte democracies. but these governments with weak mandates evershifting loyalties and poor security forces have made the region a more chaotic and unstable place, a place more susceptible than ever to rogue provocateurs fo meanting violent upheavals usually in the name of faith. the bottom line qu
